Just wanted to say this recipe is delicious! So grateful for a dairy-free casserole recipe. We used GF wild rice pasta and I added chopped up frankfurter (didn't have enough chicken on hand), 1/2 tsp turmeric, zest of one lime and some chili flakes. Fricking yummy!

Oh!!!! I am so happy you made it!! Looks lovely and the color looks so rich!! I love the photo!! Thank you for sharing!!!!

Oh and a cup of frozen peas (my new year's resolution is to eat more green veg with every meal). Getting an early start on 2014. ;)
